much the federal government trimmed from child health services last year, as fiscal stimulus programs were phased out. in fact, despite election talk about saving young generations from the federal debt, government has been neglecting children more and more. state and municipal spending for them has fallen every year according to the urban constitution. plus outlays for children are projected to drop from 10% to 8%. we have the third worst infant mortality and the second highest teen-age pregnancy rate. we're also in the bottom quarter for literacy. we're under funding our future. >>now that's politically direct. >> eliot: september, 2012, an attack on u.s. consulate in libya killed four americans including ambassador chris stevens. after the attack, the administration claimed the attack was a protest over an offensive youtube video gone bad. >> this is an response to a hateful and offensive video that was widely disseminated throughout the arab and muslim world. >> eliot: almost immediately that story ban to crumble, and it changed day by day and it was confirmed there was never any

of a vacuum because the libyan government does not have the capacity to inject itself and enforce the laws? >> in fact, that's part of the analysis that came forward in the hearing today. it's unclear that if you put more security personnel inside the compound you could have repelled this attack because outside of the fence that responsibility of security rests with the host government, in this case libya understanding that this government, new as it is is challenged, and it does not have the capacity that you would expect in a developed country, for example. i think that came forward today that even with more personnel you can probably construct a credible scenario that fewer people might have been killed. you could construct a credible scenario that fact more people would have been killed if there were more significant confrontation with this armed element that did, in fact, penetrate consulate perimeter. >> eliot: p.j. crowley, former assistant secretary of state for public affairs for president obama. thank you for joining us. >> thank you eliotototototototototototototototototototototo

street. they are trying to exploit romney's promise to end government support with public television with that banner and this ad. >> big yellow a menace to our economy, mitt romney knows it's not wall street you have to worry about it's sesame street. >> romney: the president is spending his time talking about saving big bird. i'll spend my time talk about saving jobs. >> eliot: eric fehrnstrom seems to think even less. ann romney and tag staged an intervention to help save mitt romney's campaign. but fehrnstrom would have none of it. >> i saw the story. it's a silly little story. there's no truth to it. we're focused on big things. >> eliot: for more let's go to ken voguer and tricia rose. ken, i have just got to start with you, your big scoop here. called meaningless, picky, small, petty. somebody changed mitt romney for the better at least politically. why are they diminishing it so much. >> they don't want to acknowledge they were on the wrong course and clearly they were. there is a little bit of irony as to what got them to the wrong course and that is going

state. they've talked about it for decades. they're wrecking the state. they're wrecking the government. they're not trying to make it run better. >> michael: all in a week when we heard the government had trunk under the obama--shrunk under the obama administration. i'm going to ask each of you the same question. who won the debate and will it matter. >> i think joe biden clearly won the debate. you can gauge that by the other side complaining by the style issues and not going to the substance. i think it will be merged in the polling data with whatever happens on tuesday in the presidential. but i think they've started a theme. if the president kind of continues in biden's direction it will merge together, and you'll start to see polling data to support that it was a very good debate for the democrats. >> michael: thomas frank. >> i would say biden won on issue but ryan won on decorum. one thing that biden did that i really liked when he would start on those grand rhetorical flights about the wonders of liberalism and the middle class he tend to wander off but those were inspiring. if

reasons is silly ludicrous, and insulting to government workers who have reported news, good and bad faithfully for many decades. it strikes me, jack, that there have been a few more cases of corporate gamesmanship with financial numbers than cases where the government was not honest in the past few years. in fact, didn't your company g.e. have an accounting issue led to a big sec settlement not so long ago? now that you've made this outlandish claim, where is your proof, your evidence, the facts to substantiate you're certification, or is it just a partisan screed? you might remember when my office charged ge then under your leadership with a range of i am preprity we had the proof and the judge forced you to take out a full-page add admitted to your i don't think doing. the key jack, the evidence and facts. but more importantly why should anybody be surprised that we're finally digging out of the trough? i know the corporate titans want to believe that until their taxes are cut to zero nothing good will happen. but here is the thing. over the past four years the steady effort at ke

a lasting government that represents all of them. and syria i'll work with our partners to identify and organize the members of the opposition who share our values, and then ensure that they obtain the arms they need. finally, i'll recommit america to the goal of a democratic, prosperous palestinian state living side by side it in peace and security with the jewish state of israel. >> eliot: of course, much of that matches what the administration is already doing in the middle east. as white house press secretary jay carney said to reporter, and i quote. on iran for example concrete prescriptions that make sense have been acted on. israel's leaders themselves have said that the supreme court from this president is unpress didn't: madeleine albright was more scathing. i think it is really full of platitudes and free of substance. i would really like to ask governor romney and his advisers what he would do differently. and then the campaign ad reminded voters of the hapless response that in the attacks that killed chris stevens. >> romney's response showed a lack of presidential char

: let's drill down. when he said the federal government is still standing behind some of the big banks. that's true. that has been one of the big critiques you and i agree. but would mitt romney do anything about it? and if so what? >> in fairness to the president and the dodd-frank rule, that rule has the possibility to get rid of the too big to fail. but when he says he wants to get rid of dodd-frank there would be no bigger kiss than to get rid of dodd-frank. so when romney says i'm going to get rid of dodd-frank but replace it it reminds me for years we have the presidential candidates with secret plans that never come up. all of the secret plans that these candidates have -- romney has a secret plan to replace dodd-frank, to save medicare a plan to save social security. >> eliot: let's take the boca rule where you put capital at great risk the republican party has been fighting that one tooth and nail and if there is one piece of dodd-frank that is critical, that's it. so is romney now saying he is for the vogel rule? >> it was reported today that gold sack wh
